However, the doctor who treated you should be able to help you with your CPAP problems - unavailability of a small mask is nonsense - if this supplier cannot do it, there are lots of other masks which will fit your machine.
Contact the doctor who is treating you. (If it was not a doctor but a technologist, you need to know that ONLY a doctor may legally prescribe this kind of treatment - treatment by a technologist alone is not allowed.)
